The administrator is for Program Name: Firefox Software; verified publisher: Mozilla Corporation...this is for the hard drive on my computer. The original person who set it up no longer lives with me I need to be able to make updates, etc. I cannot figure out how to change anything without the administrator password.

This is a system issue. Not Firefox. If you are still in contact with the original owner, have them set your user account as an Administrator.
